ENSURING INTEROPERABILITY

In the beginning, these two companies & agrave; they will not focus on developing technology. In fact, they will work to get to fill a number of gaps with 's goalensure full interoperability between vehicles and charging infrastructure. Specifically, a series of tests will be carried out between the wireless charging equipment of the cars and the charging infrastructure. This work will allow & agrave; to obtain a series of technical improvements of wireless charging systems as well as guaranteeing perfect interoperability. Some of the tests will be performed as part of publicly funded projects. One of the areas of interest in the work of the two companies will be; the promotion of standards for inductive charging technology.

Furthermore, & egrave; expected a & quot; close exchange of ideas & quot; for the development of a complete inductive charging system for electric vehicles. Harald Straky , Vice President for Global Development in Mechatronics and Electronics at MAHLE, commented:

We are very pleased to have found a strong partner in Siemens to make important progress in inductive charging. The combined experience of both companies will give us & agrave; a clear competitive advantage.

The ultimate goal of the two companies & agrave; & egrave; therefore to accelerate the & quot; maturation & quot; of wireless charging technology to make it available on a large scale in the future.
